With careful comparison you'll be able to see how these old homes turned into the marvelous beauties they are today. But, only with careful comparison. The exterior of these homes have been so dramatically altered, they'll give you hope for even the worst of the fixer-uppers you might be considering. 

Then again, some materials, or shapes, or structure has been kept. The architects behind these transformations made careful decisions about which, if any, of these features could fit in with the home's new modern look. You'll be surprised at what they made work! Let's get started. 

1. Before: These materials are just poorly suited to one another.

3. Before: The fading yellowish brick on this home is very unappealing.

3. Before: This overgrown ivy is hard to maintain, and starts to wear on the home after a while.

3. After: The shape was kept, but those yellow bricks were ditched for modern materials.

3. After: The tall, dark chimney really draws the eye up the length of this home.

4. Before: This home is just plain.

4. After: This bold pink makes the house stand out on the block! The windows are much more practical now, too.

5. Before: This old farm house is in desperate need of an update.

5. After: It's hard to believe this country retreat came from such humble beginnings.
